The Way We Live Now


Published February 15, 2008


LibriVox recording of The Way We Live Now, by Anthony Trollope. Read by Debra Lynn.

The Way We Live Now is a scathing satirical novel published in London in 1875 by Anthony Trollope, after a popular serialization. It was regarded by many of Trollope's contemporaries as his finest work.
One of his longest novels (it contains a hundred chapters), The Way We Live Now is particularly rich in sub-plot. It was inspired by the financial scandals of the early 1870s, and lashes at the pervading dishonesty of the age, commercial, political, moral, and intellectual. It is one of the last memorable Victorian novels to have been published in monthly parts. –from Wikipedia

Subject: thanks. well done!
thanks for this .

i would give book itself less than 5 stars (there are many faults in it, both literary, and in its worldview, though it has many merits as well) but it is well read here.

Subject: Great book, decent reading
I really enjoyed this one. The characters are all satirical caricatures and yet extremely sympathetic.

Debra Lynn is one of Lirbivox's best volunteers, and she doesn't disappoint with her rendition of The Way We Live Now. This was an extremely long book, but with Debra at the helm, it's a pleasant listen. Highly recommended!

Subject: Most enjoyable
I thoroughly enjoyed this narration of Anthony Trollope's best novel. It must have been a huge undertaking for the narrator and she managed to make the final chapter sound as fresh and as ebullient as the first. Good stuff!
